Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hello everyone, I've been lurking here for awhile but am moving towards purchasing my first ebike and the Frey AM1000 is near the top of the list. I've tried skimming through all 70 pages of this thread to get answers to my questions, but it might just be easier to ask my questions directly. I inte...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

If you didn't get it with the chainguide then you have to get the holes in there yourself. I did it as well due to too many chaindrops. But what have you been doing to your bike? Looks well used yep, lots of chain drops, unfortunately. Ivy sent me the chain guide when she sent a new rear hub. Blew ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Are there supposed to be mounting holes for the chain guide? My motor doesn't seem to have anywhere to mount it.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Get the light. It's nice to just have it. I like the lyrik/deluxe setup. 52v and extra 52v. Extra hangers for derailleur hangers. I switched to left thumb throttle and shorter cranks 150 mm Delta REF PD11IBT17CA700001541 from Miranda bikes. Makes a huge difference when going up avoiding pedal strike...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

anybody tried running the am1000 as a single speed? It seems to have plenty of torque. My ride buddy never changes the gears and it make me wonder. For those interested, I have had the Frey for several months and quite a few rides. I would suggest ordering an extra few dropouts (as others have sugge...

Off topic... Anyone know which Crank Arms I can upgrade too. Shimano E6000 or Ex1? Have the FLX Blade with the Bafang Ultra 510.

52v battery performance

52v battery performance. A buddy and I both have Frey am1000 with the 52v 17.5ah battery. We rode 28.5 miles in Lake Tahoe (flume trail and rim trail) with 3851 vertical feet of climbing. Moving time of 2 hours and 45 min. We were with a very fit buddy hammering on an Intense, so we were mostly in e...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

nice update Hardcore :) Where did you get the 150mm cranks? That has to be the worst aspect of the bike, scraping the cranks on everything. Totally agree it chews through rear tyres, I have rotated mine once and almost to the point of doing it again! Certainly keep check on those suspension bolts a...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Thanks for all the input. Do you feel the 48v BBSHD is similar powerful to the 52v Ultra? If so, that is a bit dissapointing... It might be a bit more power, but not drastically so. That is not a bad thing. I can use only throttle uphill with enough seed to jump (uphill)! Awesome feeling. It has pl...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Anyone else disgusted by the rear thru-axle supplied on the bike? I couldn't get it out - thought I was an idiot and missing something obvious - never seen a quick lock that comes apart when unlocked and offers no ability to remove the axle. Took to the local LBS and asked what I was doing wrong. T...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

The cranks are too long. Hit on everything. I will have to get shorter ones. MODS: I switched to a left thumb push throttle and it fits the bike much better IMO.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I got some unicycle cranks to be able to go this low. I tried 127, 138, 150, 160, 165, and the original and loved 150. In terms of the display, I was thinking of getting an eggrider v2 display, which is extremely small. And some even hide it under the seat post because, in all honesty, one does not...

Thanks everyone for all the great info here. My buddy and I just received our Frey AM1000s with the 52v 17ah battery. I did tons of online research before I pulled the trigger, so figured I should put in my opinions in hopes of helping others. Besides the Frey AM1000, I also ride a BBSHD 48v on an o...

Anybody put aftermarket chain ring on the ultra? Maybe 40 for single-track? There is conflicting info if it is a 5 bolt 110bcd or 130bcd.

Can you send me a link ? I asked for 52V batteries, but got no response form Ivy. I will order if I can get the 52V version
The 48v 21ah and 52v 17ah are same price.
